In the extended video, released Wednesday morning, Quaid can be seen acting on a full view of the set — complete with literal “horse shit,” “zombies,” “pussies” and everything else he lambastes in the original cellphone video of the flip-out that went viral earlier this week.
As TheWrap previously reported, the 43-second YouTube clip, which appeared to have been shot on a cellphone, captured Quaid verbally flipping out on “the most unprofessional set” he’s ever been on.
“What the fuck? Keep going. I am acting here, and this dickhead here wanders on my set. I can’t even get a line out, until Dopey the dick starts whispering in your ear and you’re not even watching anymore,” the actor screamed. “Don’t fucking ‘Dennis’ me. I am doing my job here. I am a pro. This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on. This is horse shit!”
Media reports and Internet forums like Reddit had previously speculated about whether the video was real or a hoax, and some suggested notorious viral video prankster Jimmy Kimmel was behind Quaid’s freakout. But Kimmel denied involvement on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night.
“When I woke up this morning, I was being blamed for it. There are two dozen articles — and thousands of comments online — suggesting that this is a prank, and I am responsible for it,” Kimmel said. “And I have to say, that’s disappointing. You play like 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don’t trust you anymore.
“Did you ever consider that maybe Dennis was doing voiceover for a new cartoon? That’s right — he’s playing ‘Dennis Duck,'” the late-night host joked.
Kimmel was the prime suspect for setting up a hoax similar to the “Worst Twerk Fail EVER — Girl Catches On Fire!” video that went viral in 2013 and was later revealed to be a skit for his show.
